Incredible ways you can use artificial intelligence
The opinion of a Swiss IT service provider on the subject of 'what you can do with artificial intelligence'.
There's a lot of talk these days about the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to revolutionise the way companies work. But what does that actually mean? And what can be achieved with AI? Essentially, AI is a branch of computer science that deals with the creation of intelligent agents, i.e. systems that can think logically, learn and act autonomously. In practice, this means that companies can use AI to automate a wide range of tasks, from customer service and marketing to logistics and finance.

How AI is changing the world
There is no doubt that artificial intelligence (AI) will change the world. But what does this mean for companies, individuals and society as a whole?
In business, AI is being used to automate tasks that used to be done by humans. This leads to more efficiency and cost savings. For example, a company that uses AI to automate the shift planning of its employees can save a lot of money.
AI is also used to develop new products and services. Google's AI division, DeepMind, for example, has developed a programme that can create new video games.
AI is also changing the way we interact with the world. Google's AI-powered Google Home and Amazon's AI-powered Echo, for example, are devices that allow us to interact with our devices through voice commands.
In the future, AI will play an even more important role in our lives. For example, AI will be used to diagnose and treat diseases.
AI in the economy
The potential of artificial intelligence in the economy is enormous. From automating simple tasks to assisting in decision-making, AI has the ability to make businesses more efficient and effective.
Some of the ways in which businesses are already using AI are:
Automated customer service
Using natural language processing, companies can create chatbots that can communicate with customers and answer their questions. This frees up human customer service agents to deal with more complex enquiries.
Automated data entry
Automated data entry can save businesses time and money by entering data into systems quickly and accurately.
Automated marketing can help businesses target specific customers with relevant ads and messages.
With the help of AI, companies can predict future trends and behaviours and thus better decide where to allocate their resources.
The possibilities for AI in business are endless. As AI technology continues to develop, companies that use it will have a distinct advantage.
AI for good
There is much talk that artificial intelligence (AI) can be used for evil purposes, but what about the potential for good? Here are just a few ways in which AI can be used for good:
AI can help detect and treat disease. Google's DeepMind AI, for example, is being used to help doctors treat kidney disease.
Help for the environment
AI can be used to monitor and protect the environment. For example, Google's DeepMind AI is used to save energy at London's Royal Free Hospital.
Reducing traffic congestion
AI can help optimise traffic flow and reduce congestion. For example, the Singapore government is using AI to improve traffic flow in the city.
Helping the elderly and disabled.
AI can help the elderly and disabled live more independently. Microsoft's AI app Seeing, for example, helps the blind and visually impaired to see better.
AI can help law enforcement solve crimes and catch criminals. For example, the UK police use AI to identify criminals from CCTV footage.
Helping with disaster relief
AI can be used in disaster relief. Google's crisis response team, for example, uses AI to help victims of natural disasters.
